Can from the brewery. Pitch black with tan head. Nose is sweet cola, chocolate and roasted malt. On the taste I get some sweet sugary malt, cola, vanilla, and a roasty chocolate finish.

On the nose some nice burnt coffee and dark chocolate.
Taste wise, while those same flavours are coming through, there is a surprising sweetness on the back of the tongue. This is not a bitter Porter.
Liked this one quite a bit

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bar Hop (Toronto). Dark brown with mocha head. Chocolate, vanilla, hint of smoke, quite sweet, underlying semi-roasted malt. High carbonation, mild+ body, chocolate cake with a hint of hazelnut, sweet but dry on finish, reminds me of Rogue Chocolate Stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask on draught at WVRST. January 28, 2014.
Decent porter from a brewery that makes beers I’m not usually interested in. Faint aroma. Dark, opaque beer (hard to see in dimly-lit restaurant). Bitter chocolate and coffee. Not quite as strong flavoured as I would have expected, but still a nice porter.

Can. Black colour with a fast head. I find the aroma to be quite barley like at first then it goes all roast and chocolate like after with a hint of dust or something grainy. On the palate it proves to be chocolate and sweet like with a bittery finish. Decent beer.
